Jamaicans For Justice- A True Patriotic Organization Despite Its Images.
By Winston Donald
In an interview with Kay Osbourne, Executive Director of Jamaicans For Justice, she recognized that two images of her organization pronounced in the Jamaican space are anti-police and hegemony by white and brown-skinned wealthy or /and middle class Jamaicans. I must say her response was a lucid and brilliantly answered.
Her recognition of these  two  prominent images are certainly legitimate and prof...

Alexander Bustamante - A not so honest politician.

Posted by Winston Donald on Saturday, March 22, 2014, In : Jamaica 

 

By Winston Donald


From now on I intend to provide articles of a nostalgic nature as we forgot our past too early. I intend to provide the usual fair and  “incontestable”  voice. As I reiterate , I have no political leanings and do not care who may my articles may refer to. I am 150% sure that what I write is the truth, the whole truth which can stand up to scrutiny , up to heavy scrutiny that no one, no one can dispute my facts.

My first article regards Sir Alexander Bustamante. I  ...

Posted by The New N Used Link Team on Wednesday, February 26, 2014, In : Jamaica 



By Winston Donald


Class,  color and race have defined Jamaica. The majority black Jamaicans are ever reminded of our past not by institutions but by the power relations that permeate our socioeconomic and cultural space.
Yet in our history  the people of color are and were  those who represented colonizers , settlers and abusers of  our humanity   but strangely  at times  produce  individuals who  made an indelible impression on our lives and have served with love and call beyond duty.Not many...

CRIME WILL REMAIN BECAUSE OF THE EVIL OF THE POWERBLOC AND THE CORRUPTION OF THE POLICE FORCE

Posted by Winston Donald ( Galley owner, Newspaper Columnist, MA student) on Monday, February 17, 2014, In : Jamaica 
 


Just two weeks ago I attended a Unite Jamaica conference put on by Minister Peter Bunting. I am wondering how effective was this conference. Personally and from all empirical evidence this conference has nothing new for reducing crime. Its all BIG TALK.

Crime will never be reduced until we deal with those at the helm who finance crime by their greed and corruption and politics.

First let look at the business community. One prominent member of the NIA who I have complained abou...

Should the Jamaican Motto, “ Out of Many , One People be Changed?”

Posted by Winston Donald on Monday, February 17, 2014, In : Jamaica 


Should the Jamaican Motto, “ Out of Many , One People be Changed?”


Are we really one people. In a fractured class and race biased society as Jamaica, many people especially

those in academia or those that are Afro Centric or black conscious are examining the “wisdom’ of

those who construct the “Out of Many, One People.”

IS CRIME IN JAMAICA THE PNP LEGACY?

CMCfeature- JAMAICA-CRIME- A Jamaican citizen security programme targets women involved in gangs*

 
I have no political aspirations. My family and I have never deprived any benefits from political parties. In

fact, in the days when the JLP with their hegemonic coloured politicians tried to buy votes with flour and

rotten cod fish , my home in St. Ann was one of the few that voted People’s National Party and shunned

the rotten goods which were being used to induce voting. To cut a long story short, it is alarming that

the criminal activities have taken a turn for the wo...

Jamaica is due to experience an earthquake on the same scale as one that sank a section of Port Royal more than 300 years ago, according to the Earthquake Unit at the University of the West Indies.

There have been some calculations about 144 years after the 1904, some about 84 (years), but it's really not accurate It is believed that there are cycles but no one knows the recurrent intervals. Some calculations have been done based on the history of earthquakes, so any calculations that hav...

Crime in Jamaica & Tourism

Posted by The New N Used Link Team on Monday, January 21, 2013, In : Jamaica 
There is much controversy on whether or not crime is a major concern for tourists to Jamaica.

Whether deserved or not, Jamaica is generally depicted as having a high crime rate, particularly in certain neighborhoods of its larger cities such as in kingston and montego bay. Jamaican authorities and tourism bureaus claim that the crime rates in Jamaica are not significantly d...
